Digital Product Owner

Oscar Technology are exclusively partnered with one of our growing financial services clients based in Bolton, assisting them on a search for their first Digital Product Owner.

Being the first Product Owner brings opportunity………..

The backstory
Our client are a market leader in a niche area of Consumer lending, producing a very customer centric service that whilst it leans on technology, does retain a big human touch. They are on something of a transformational journey, evolving their technology stack towards a microservices architecture and the delivery into a Product-based model, as part of Agile adoption. Think of this as a bit of start-up type culture within an established business.

A bit about the role
This Product Owner hire will play a pivotal role in helping to embed a Product-based model and whilst owning customer facing digital channels, which are a combination of a tech platform developed in-house and mobile applications developed by a 3rd party. These consume a number of third party API's whilst also integrate with ID & Fraud verification products.

Your role will essentially shape customer acquisitions, so you'll be using data to track user behaviours and then using that data to help reshape the customer journey.

In addition, you'll be working alongside another squad that are shaping their bespoke CRM platform, which is something of an ecosystem used by sales and wider operational roles.

Alongside this you will also be helping to push out good product behaviours within the technology function and into the wider business, so you need to know what good looks like!

Why consider this?

This role is great for someone that has a strong grasp of the fundamentals of product such as setting up & managing roadmaps, tooling and using data to create funnels and drive decisions. You know Scrum in all its glory and how to plan and review sprints. If you've got these areas licked and feel confident enough in your influencing skills to others drive a broader adoption, then you're looking in the right place.

Furthermore, being Product Owner number one, you have a great scope to shape and mould your career medium term and potentially build this role into something bigger.

You'll be working under the guise of technology leader that has a lot of pedigree in re-shaping and scaling several really highly-renowned tech firms in the North West, so you have a supportive and inspiring mentor.

Post Covid, this role will remain 4 days a week working from home, with 1 day in the office.

What you'll need

  • Roughly a minimum of 2 years Product Ownership experience - tech products
  • Demonstrable experience of creating & managing product backlogs
  • Good knowledge of Atlassian tools
  • A data-driven, analytical approach to problem solving
  • A real can-do attitude!
  • A delivery focused mindset. You are not too precious if something not delivered in a 'textbook product' fashion in the early days
